Mountain Yellow-Legged Frog Webinar

Attended my second, hour-long, GoToMeeting online webinar within in a week, this one by SAVE THE FROGS! founder and director, Dr. Kerry Kriger, who was joined by San Diego Zoo biologist and research technician, Frank Santana, to discuss his work raising and releasing the critically endangered Mountain Yellow-Legged Frogs into the San Jacinto mountains of Southern California.

It was a very informative and educational look into all the incredible work being done by the Zoo’s Institute for Conservation Research to help save these amazing little, garlic-smelling amphibians, including their Janthinobacterium lividum, or J.liv, inoculations against the devastating chytrid fungus.

Yet another reason I’m a proud, card-carrying member of the San Diego Zoo.

 

Frank’s portion begins at 9:12 into the video.
